Use tags to organize and retrieve files.

Overview

Tags allows you to manage all your files so that you can easily find the files that you need, when you need them.
  • Tag everything on your Mac: documents, emails, images, and all other files. Quickly find files irrespective of where you saved them. You can bring up Tag's UI with a simple keystroke in most applications, so that you can Tag files and search for Tags, wherever you are.
  • Tags are like keywords for files. Using tags allows you to group files which have something in common. You can apply many different Tags to a single file as well as apply the same Tag to multiple files. This allows you to associate files to one another in a way far superior to a rigid file / folder structure.
Features:
  • Tag files directly in all supported applications
  • Full Spotlight integration
  • Supports in-application search
  • Create smart folders and mailboxes
  • AppleScript support
Supported Applications: Tags works natively with basically all applications that properly support AppleScript.
  • Finder
  • Mail
  • Address Book
  • iPhoto
  • Safari
  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc.)
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Xcode
  • Rapidweaver
  • OmniOutliner
  • Pages
  • Keynote
  • Quicktime
Of course, even if the app is not supported, you can still tag the resulting file in the Finder!

What's new in Tags

Version 2.5.5:

This is a great application but there are many files that I can't tag, usually from within the files application. The developers rarely update this application and I find that disappointing. It has such great potential. I do still recommend the Tags, I just hope the developers don't give up on it.

Of all the tag management apps, this was always my favorite. As of now, with the introduction of tags in Mavericks (and continued support in Yosemite), the app is effectively useless... Ideally the app could be saved, it just needs to be updated to support the tag values now 'built into Mac OS X'. I tried manually doing this with a Hex editor, but it broke the App... If the developer would make this change I would happily use it today. Without this change the app is rendered useless.

For the time being, this was an excellent app for its ubiquity and simplicity. But as said by others (and still valid of september 2014): No updates, no support for generic OS X tags (in Mavericks (let alone Yosemite)). Not useful anymore. Sorry to say: This is abandonware. Do not buy. (I switched my tagging to HoudahSpot and Launchbar)

Tags is abandonware and has not been seriously developed for years (apart from making it work with new OS X releases). Despite repeated questions by users to Case Apps on several media there has been no word whatsoever since Mavericks was released as to when an update can be expected. This is a pity since the app used to work fine. Seems like this is going the way Punakea went.

This is OBSOLETE software if you use Mavericks. It writes tags in an old format, and there appears to be no effort to update the application. It creates OpenMeta tags, an old non-official format that many applications used. But everything is moving to the new Mavericks format, so if you buy this your tags will likely not be very usuable in the new system or new applications.

This app is not updated enough for my liking. Yes it's simple and does the job, but a developer that cares about their app and customers would improve and innovate. Plus, the only response to Mavericks so far is on twitter, with no mention on the website, leaving people like me wondering if the developer really cares anymore. I am confused on how this will work with Mavericks as well because doesn't Mavericks have a limit on the amount of tags? The interface doesn't seem like it lends itself to large amounts of tags like Tags does. I use a ton of different tags, and I still think openMeta is going to be useful alongside Mavericks, but I could be wrong.

Until Maverick comes out, this really is the best tagging utility currently available. However, to echo what a prior reviewer below me stated, the app is way overpriced for functionality. I mean, it hasn't been updated since 2011 and the developers want to charge almost as much as it might cost to upgrade Maverick? No thank you. On another note, it's sad that a function so useful for file organization such as tagging has undergone so little development. You would be amazed with how easy you are able to find files when you combine Hazel automation with tagging.

Excuse me, it was updated in 2012. Still overpriced for what it does.

Very nice and effective app. Overpriced. I'm sure if they cut the price down by 3 ($9.99), they would sell at least 3-5 times more. Especially if they enter in the MAS. Also, they need to assure people that they are still active in the development and updates of their app. Finally, the trial period is too short to evaluate an application such as Tags. Because it's an approach to OpenMeta that we need to get acustomed to in order to really feel we need it. Thanks.

Somebody should update this page. The actual version is at least 2.5.1. BTW, a nice app but unfortunately quite overpriced.

Does anyone know why the developer doesn't respond to their email that they issue...as I've moved to a new computer; I keep trying to "unlock" the software with my serial number. And I keep getting a message to contact the support team? Frustrating.
